Customizable Syllabus Templates (Updated)


Even though we don’t head back to school for another three weeks, I decided to take a look at few school-related things recently and realized that my syllabus needed some major love. I was pretty happy with the syllabus content when I wrote it last year, but this year I knew I could do much better.

Here is a look at my syllabus before.
It’s not the worst thing in the world (okay, maybe it is…), but it’s a pretty standard syllabus with absolutely no visual interest.
Now, several hours and a few cups of coffee later, here is my revised syllabus.


Since I had quite a few people ask me about this syllabus from my instastory yesterday, I decided to share the syllabus love by turning it into a downloadable template. It’ll be posted as a freebie for the duration of my blog launch week.
UPDATE (8/15): I received such positive feedback about the syllabus template I shared during my blog launch week that it has now turned into a Customizable Syllabus Template Pack! It includes 3 front page options and 3 second page options to choose from, so you can mix & match to fit your style and needs. Also, pretty much everything in the template pack is now movable/customizable, whereas the original template I posted had more static components. Thank you so much to all who provided their thoughts & feedback on this. Make sure to follow me on Instagram or TPT for exclusive access to upcoming products and freebies! Enjoy!

      I just realized that when I replied to your comment earlier in the month, I posted it as a general comment rather than an actual "Reply" to you, so I'm not sure if you ever ended up seeing that the syllabus was reposted for a short period of time. If you'd still like the syllabus template, email me at and I will send it to you! Sorry about that — I'm still trying to navigate the blogging world. :/

    Oh how cool is this?? It's easy to read, and it is fun to look at. I am an Early Ed-er, so this wouldn't work well for my kids, but I love the idea of this template even for a weekly/monthly newsletter!

      Thank you! I had lots of fun making it. Never thought I'd say this, but PowerPoint is pretty awesome.
